Also known as: laryngeal papillomatosis, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, RRP.
Laryngeal papilloma is a disease that leads to wart-like growths on the larynx, or voice box. These are non-cancerous, but they can grow quickly and tend to recur even after being removed.
The human papilloma virus (HPV) causes laryngeal papilloma. The two types responsible for the disease are HPV 6 and HPV 11.
Common symptoms of laryngeal papilloma include hoarseness, difficult breathing, stridor (noisy breathing) and coughing.
Surgery to remove the papillomas is the most common treatment. The papillomas can be removed with a laser or a microdebrider without causing too much damage to the larynx.
